Title: Desolate

Series: Grace Trilogy #1
Author: Autumn Grey
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date: September 24, 2018




Blurb

There are angels and demons at war inside my
head.


I had it all figured out: finish high school, attend seminary and finally
answer my calling of becoming a priest. What I hadn’t counted in the equation
was her.

Grace Miller.

The girl who was always out of my reach. The girl who still makes me lose my
breath with just a look.

Little did I know she would become my temptation and vice, and quite possibly,
my ruin.

Now I’m standing at a crossroads, and my head is a battlefield. How do I choose
sides when it means losing a part of who I am?

Review by Jen Skewes

This is the first book that I have read by Autumn Grey.  I read the blurb and was intrigued.  I knew that I had to read this taboo romance.  First of all look at that cover.  But it was the taboo part, the part where the hero's path in life is set and how being with the one girl who he cannot stop thinking about can ruin that path.  

When Sol was only 10 years old his world came crashing down. He lost both of his parents.  His uncle Luke who is also a Priest takes him in.  At a young age he knew that his life's path would be to serve God. He knew that his calling in life was to follow in his uncle's footsteps.  It was everything he wanted.  After high school he would go on to Seminary and live his life serving God and helping others.  But something happened or should I say someone.  Her name is Grace Miller and she could possibly stand in the way of something that he has wanted his entire life.  It was in church where he first met Grace, the girl that seemed to save him that one day.  Through the years he never stopped thinking about her but was too afraid to actually talk to her.  After their final year of high school he finally gets the courage to talk to her.  All he wanted was to be her friend. To him she was always the most beautiful girl that he has ever seen but wanting to become a Priest stopped he from ever pursuing anything with her.  But now that they are friends, how will he keep them from becoming more?

Grace is not in the best place right now and when her and Sol start to become friends she starts to change.  She's happier and loves spending time with him.  But at the same time she knows that spending time with Sol is very dangerous to her heart.  She knows that she can fall for this gorgeous, kind, and caring boy, and falling for him will only leave her with a broken heart, because in a few months he will be leaving.  And where will that leave her and their friendship?

I really loved this book. It was a very slow burn between Sol and Gracie.   The sexual tension between the two of them slowly building and building until they both get to a point where they can no longer help themselves.  I felt the passion and intensity of both their relationship and the feelings that they had for each other.  I wanted nothing more than for the two of them to give into those feelings and be together.  But it is not that easy at all.  Sol has a difficult choice, a choice between God and a girl that he is falling for.  I loved him but at times the two of them completely frustrated me.  Maybe Sol more so that Grace. He knew what he wanted, knew what needed to be done, and knew how important it was to not go there with her.  And the back and forth just about killed me.  But they are still young and I knew that Sol was acting his age, he was a young 18 year old boy who fell for a girl.  So for that I understood him completely as well as Grace's reasons for sometimes being a little forward.  I didn't always agree with their decisions or actions but I am not sure it mattered because I loved them.

I loved their story, all though at times it may have been a little too slow.  As I mentioned earlier Sol did frustrate me with his back and forth and in a way wanting his cake and eating it too.  But I think for me I wanted to understand him a little better.  I didn't quite understand his dedication and reasons for wanted to be a Priest so bad.  I am hoping that we get more answers in the next book.  Overall this book is filled with emotions, passion and an intense love between two people that have no business falling for each other.  I cannot wait for book two, and have to wonder if the fortune teller will be correct in her predictions.

Excerpt



“Can I ask
you something? It’s totally fine to say no.” She adds the last part quickly.
She smiles and looks at the spot over my shoulder, her fingers tapping a quick
beat on the table. She looks vulnerable, her eyes wide, allowing me to see how
nervous she is. I mean, how can I say no to her?
“Sure.” I
settle back on the seat and stretch my arms along the back of it.
“Can I . .
. can I kiss you?” Her eyes snap back to mine, and she hurriedly adds, “I know
you’re heading to Boston in a few weeks and—” She sucks in a deep breath. “I really want to kiss you. I promise I
won’t try to do anything else. Just kiss you.”
Holy. Shit.
I take a
deep breath, letting her words sink in, and realize I’m breathing faster than
normal. My gaze falls on her mouth, and I literally stop breathing because that
mouth, God help me. It’s like a
gateway to a whole new galaxy where secrets and wishes are waiting to be
unveiled.
I need to
kiss her. I want to discover the universe beyond those full lips. I’ve been
fighting the need to kiss her since I walked inside the diner and saw her
wiping down the counter. But my brain is telling me it’s a bad idea and kissing
her will irrevocably change me. Change my life. I know I won’t be able to come
back from that. But the other part of me, the part that has a hopeless,
desperate crush on this girl, just wants to drag her onto my lap and let her do
whatever she wants.
“It’s
getting late. We should probably lock up and leave,” she says in a small voice
when I take too long to reply. She pushes her hair back before standing up and
starting to stack our plates together. Her gaze meets mine briefly. “Look, I’m
sorry I made this awkward. It’s not fair to you—”
I reach
out, curling a finger through the belt loops on her jean shorts, and tug. But
she doesn’t move toward me. Instead, her grip around the plates grows tighter,
and she turns to leave.
“Gracie.” I
tighten my hold, forcing her to set everything back on the table and look at
me. “Come here.”
I pull her
close while placing my other hand on her hip. Then, I slide both hands in the
back pockets of her shorts, pulling her closer until all I can see is her face
and her lips—so close to mine.
Her chest
rises and falls quicker than before, and I realize mine’s doing the same. We
stare at each other. I wonder if she regrets asking to kiss me. That thought
makes my chest ache. Right now, in this moment, with my face inches away from
her boobs, I’d do anything for a chance to know what she tastes like. My
fingers skim along her arm and bury themselves in her hair. She trembles
against me, so I know she wants this as much as I do.
Earlier
today after leaving work, I drove home. My mind was preoccupied, and I was restless,
so after taking a shower, I got into my car. And somehow, I found myself
parking the truck outside the diner. Maybe this is why I came here; I don’t
know. But I really want to find out.
“Do it.” My
voice is a whisper. I’m almost breathless with want. I want to yank her down
and kiss her myself, but she looks like she’s about to flee. So I let her come
to me. “Kiss me.”
She sinks
her teeth in her bottom lip as she comes closer. I’m glad I’m sitting down
because my knees are shaking with anticipation. Then her lips touch mine, her
eyes on me the whole time. Need has my fingers tightening in her hair as she
presses her lips more firmly to mine. Her tongue peeks out, running along the
seam of my lips. I groan and shift on the seat to ease the discomfort in my
pants. My mouth opens, and the second her tongue touches mine, my body rattles
with a shiver. This moment feels sacred. Like a blessing. It feels blasphemous
and holy all at once. It scares me.
Tugging her
into my lap, I fist her hair in my hands as I incline her hear further, fusing
our lips together more firmly. But our noses are in the way, and we have to
find the right angle to stop bumping into each other. It’s frustrating at first
because I want her lips on mine and her breath mingling with my breath. Our
heads finally slant in the right positions, and our lips fit perfectly. We both
exhale in relief and groan at the contact.
Something
in me breaks loose. Suddenly I’m pulling at her hair frantically, and my kisses
become hungry and aggressive. I’m trembling and desperate and all I can think
is I’ve never felt anything like this before, and I don’t ever want to stop or
let her go. I don’t need to wonder if she’s enjoying this kiss too. Her hands
fisted in my hair, yanking me closer and closer are all the answers I need.
She’s pressing her chest into mine, and I swear I can feel her heart hammering.
Neither one of us wants it to end.
We break
apart and gulp for air, and my hands leave her hair, greedy to explore other
parts of her, but they end up on her hips, pulling her further into me.
“More,” I
beg, because right now, that’s all I can do.
Beg like my
life depends on it. At this point, I feel like I’m about to go up in flames.

Release Blitz: Redemption by Georgia Cates


Title: Redemption: A Sin Series Standalone Novel
Author: Georgia Cates
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: September 18, 2018


I was on my way to having everything that I wanted… until I opened that door. That’s when my entire world shattered. In a single second, my happy life was gone.

She broke my heart. There, I admit it. But a Fellowship man doesn’t mourn the loss of a woman. He moves on to the next one. And the next. But what I quickly discover is that it doesn’t matter how many women I’m with. I’ll never find one who can replace Lorna Frazier.

I’ve been an arse, doing everything within my power to hurt her. And I’ve been successful at it. But it doesn’t heal the pain of losing the woman that I love. She is my everything, and I’m nothing without her.

Apart, we’re weak. Together, we’re strong. 
Apart, we’re in hell. Together, we’re in heaven.
Apart, we’re broken. Together, we’re whole. 

I won’t give up on us.




4 stars
Review by Lisa Kane

She had that word placed on her skin because she believes that she needs redeeming from the past. But she's wrong. I'm the one who needs absolution. 
Lorna Frazier is my redemption. 

Leith Duncan has been in hell the last four years. He's lost the love of his life and spent most of the past years whoring his life away to forget that loss. But no more, he's going to get Lorna Frazier back.

I'm twenty-eight, single, fucking celibate, and despised by the women that I love. 

Four years ago, Lorna was involved in a foursome with Leith, Sin and Jamie from the Fellowship. (I have yet to understand Lorna taking the lead in that whole situation) But Leith and Lorna had decided that it would only be the two of them from now on. But Leith needed to talk to Sin about it, being as he was the Fellowship's leaders. Weird right? Anyway, before Leith could talk to Sin he saw Lorna doing something unforgiveable and that was the end of Leith and Lorna.

I close the door on every hope and dream I had for my future with Lorna. And I close the door of my heart, locking it so it never opens again. 

Ever since then, it's been Lorna and Leith hurting each other. More so, Leith throwing his women in front of Lorna's face, making no mistake that she was replaced and by many. Since Lorna was the head barmaid in Leith's bar, she had many opportunities to have that wound opened up again and again. Until she couldn't take it anymore and quit.

Leith doesn't see much of Lorna these days and when he does, she will rarely speak to him. But he's going to change that. Lorna's just started a job as a nanny for one of the bar's notorious drunks and Leith doesn't trust this situation not to get out of hand. But even he didn't realize how quickly things can turn.

Slowly, and I mean slowly Leith is trying to be the man that he should be for Lorna. They've hurt each other so badly in the past, but he doesn't wants them to have a future. It looks like it's going well, just up until someone else shows interest in Lorna. Being a member of the order, she must be claimed by another before the leader can turn down another man's request to spend time with her. (told you it was weird) Leith can't bare seeing Lorna with another man, but it's too soon to claim her, they have only begun to talk again.

I'm not worthy of her. At least tonight I'm not but I will be. I swear that I will become a man who is worthy of her love and deep loyalty. 

There's lots of evil doing in Redemption. Jealousy and disloyal brothers of the order will stir up a kilt full of trouble. Can Leith win back Lorna's heart and keep her safe?

"Into me you see."











Georgia resides in rural Mississippi with her wonderful husband, Jeff, and their two beautiful daughters. She spent fourteen years as a labor and delivery nurse before she decided to pursue her dream of becoming an author and hasn’t looked back yet.

When she’s not writing, she’s thinking about writing. When she’s being domestic, she’s listening to her music and visualizing scenes for her current work in progress. Every story coming from her always has a song to inspire it.

Release Blitz: Guilty as Sin by Meghan March





Guilty until proven innocent.

That’s the way the world works, right?

I’m tired of being convicted without evidence, all because my last name is Gable.

The Riscoffs might own this town, but I’m done following their rules.

If only I could forget just how easily Lincoln Riscoff can drag me under his spell.

Review by Lisa Kane

Richer Than Sin left us dangling off a book land cliff. Guilty as Sin picks right up with Lincoln Riscoff once again, screwing things up with Whitney Gable.

"What have you done?"

Lincoln may have been shocked to learn that Ricky Rango, Whitney's deceased husband's estate, is claiming that he is the real Riscoff Heir.

Now of course he is shocked, but his first reaction is to accuse Whitney of some how being involved in this mess. And we all know from the first book that Whitney runs when she can't handle things.

Self-digust, for letting this happen again, washes over me. I'm the only one who can allow someone to make me feel this way, and I'm done. 

These books go from the past to the present. That fills in a lot of back story for why the Riscoff's hate the Gable's so much. (especially Sylvia Riscoff, Lincoln's mother)

As if Whitney and Lincoln didn't have enough problems, with the sins of their past mistakes hanging over their head, there is now a new threat to the Riscoff empire, one that can destroy any kind of hope for the two of them to reconcile. Have they grown up enough over the past decade or will they always allow other people to interfere in their lives?

"You gonna keep letting other people decide how you life goes? Or are you going to figure out what it is that you want?"

But in their defense, the hits just keep on coming. Lincoln's family is just vile and his mother-she's the she devil of all bitches. Just squash that bug Lincoln-how many times are you going to mess up with Whitney??

We have one more book left to wrap up this story-there are several shady characters who need to pay before I read the final chapters...Here's hoping that happens.

Today is all about moving forward-to my future with Whitney.



















From New York Times bestselling author Meghan March comes a brand new saga of forbidden love and second chances.

A Riscoff and a Gable can never live happily ever after. Our family feud is the stuff of legends.

Ten years ago, Whitney Gable caught me off guard with her long legs and grab-you-by-the-balls blue eyes.

I didn’t know or care what her name was.

Like any Riscoff worth the family name, I went after what I wanted. We burned like a flash fire until she married another man.

She hates me, and she should.

I objected on her wedding day.

Now she’s home, with those same long legs and man-eater stare, but there’s no ring on her finger.

They say a Riscoff and a Gable can never live happily ever after . . . but I’m not done with Whitney Gable.

I’ll never be done with her.

iBooks | Amazon US | Amazon UK | Amazon AU | Amazon CA | Kobo | BN | Audible






Whitney Gable is the kind of woman you fight to the death to protect.

To keep.

To cherish.

I’ve finally learned my lesson, and it’s time to prove I’m the man who’s worthy of her.

I don’t care what it takes, because failure is not an option.

No matter who or what stands in our way—this time, she’ll be mine forever

BLURB
Willow Taylor lives in a castle with large walls and iron fences. But this is no ordinary castle. It’s called Heartstone Psychiatric Hospital and it houses forty other patients. It has nurses with mean faces and techs with permanent frowns.
It has a man, as well. A man who is cold and distant. Whose voice drips with authority. And whose piercing gray eyes hide secrets, and maybelinger on her face a second too long.
Willow isn’t supposed to look deep into those eyes. She isn’t supposed to try to read his tightly leashed emotions. And neither is she supposed to touch herself at night, imagining his powerful voice and that cold but beautiful face.
No, Willow Taylor shouldn’t be attracted to Simon Blackwood, at all.
Because she’s a patient and he’s her doctor. Her psychiatrist.
